Deliveroo Raising Funds for Carnival’s Forgotten

2021 marks two years of cancellation for Notting Hill Carnival, but this weekend, Deliveroo customers can purchase limited edition extra-large patties, stamped with artwork inspired by stories from Notting Hill Carnival Ambassadors, with all proceeds helping to fund Notting Hill Carnival 2022.

Deliveroo has teamed up with the renowned London event organisers and its ambassadors to help carnival lovers across London and Manchester get a taste of carnival at home.

Limited edition carnival-inspired artworks will be stamped onto extra-large Jamaican patties available to purchase for £5.66 in London and Manchester on 29th and 30th August, exclusively on Deliveroo. Purchases will raise much needed funds for those affected directly by the event cancellation, such as street food vendors, band players and performers.

The designs – created by Notting Hill Ambassadors and feature unique illustrations of their carnival experience and what the event means to them – will adorn patties that come in a classic spicy beef and vegetable filling, plus a spicy vegan option.

From stories of smoking hot BBQ barrels, flamboyant headdresses and costumes through to political stand points and carnival slogans, the designs honour, protect and promote the heritage of Notting Hill Carnival in all its flair and vibrancy.

 

  • A’sha Morris – who at just 13 years old is Carnival’s youngest ambassador. She has taken part in Notting HIll Carnival Mass since she was just four months old and has been a member of the junior steel band since she was five. 
  • Fiona Compton – runs the world’s first 100% non-profit carnival section ‘Not Asking For It’, which works towards supporting Carnival masqueraders against sexual assault
  • Shakka – a singer/songwriter and producer born and raised in Notting Hill. Shakka is of Dominican heritage and draws on his culture of soca and reggae music to produce his vibrant songs. Carnival runs in the family as Shakka’s mother worked there as a street food vendor
  • Chef Hasan – Trinidadian-born, Hasan, brings Jerk Chicken to the streets of Notting Hill, where he’s been serving up food as a street vendor for years

Typically there are over 300 food vendors serving food from around the world at Carnival. Deliveroo is encouraging people to support local restaurants and dine on everything from Trinidadian ‘Roti’ or Guyanese ‘Pepper Pot’ to the ever-popular ‘Jamaican Jerk’, which is what many people have come to know of as the scent of Notting Hill Carnival’, thanks to the roaring famous jerk pit.

Deliveroo customers who aren’t in delivery access to these locations can still enjoy the amazing flavours of Caribbean food over the bank holiday weekend. Across the weekend, Deliveroo will be highlighting over 700 restaurants serving different Caribbean cuisines in a dedicated section on the app – favourites including Cottons, Rudie’s Jerk Shack and JRK Kitchen and Buzzrocks Caribbean.

Customers should look for the Notting Hill Carnival banner on the app and click through to see what participating restaurants are in their area.

The limited edition Notting Hill Carnival-inspired patties come in a classic spicy beef and vegetable filling, plus a spicy vegan option and will be available to order in London and Manchester on 29th – 30th August, exclusively on the Deliveroo app while stocks last.

 

Each patty costs £5.66 and can be found by searching ‘Deliveroo’s Notting Hill Carnival Patties’ in the app or online
